Congrats to my pal Ben D for completing the 2019 Cannonball Run (NYC to LA) in 37 hours 39 minutes, in his 6 banger '56 Chevy. He was driving my '56 Chevy 'Fat Elvis' when we were rear-ended in Memphis, knocking us out of the 2016 Cannonball Run
and believe me, averaging 76 mph, including stops, from NYC to Redondo Beach CA with a 1956 Chevy Stovebolt 6 is pretty damned respectable
That time would have been good for 3rd place in the first Cannonball Run (1971) and 2nd place in 1975
Hard to say if it was tougher or easier to achieve that kind of time in 1971 or 2019; back then the traffic was much lighter, but they didn't have Waze, which is better than any radar detector.
